ADA Hand Dryer Options: Make Sure You're Compliant

Allied offers many ADA hand dryer options. As you know, complying with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is a major concern of business owners and facility managers across the United States. We at Allied make compliance easy by offering a variety of models with the features you want and at prices to fit your budget.

ADA Hand Dryer Options: What You Need to Know

ADA hand dryers should be easy for people with physical disabilities to reach without impeding free movement around the restroom. Here are a few specifics to keep in mind:

  • You should install ADA hand dryer units so their "operable parts," such as start buttons, nozzles, sensors, etc., rise no more than 48 inches above the floor. Where hand dryers are mounted above counters, wash sinks, and other obstructions, they should rise no more than 44-48 inches above the floor.
  • The restroom should have ample free turning space for people in wheelchairs. You may accomplish this either with a 60-inch circular space or a T-shaped turning space.
  • ADA hand dryer units should be as low-profile as possible when compared to the surrounding wall. This is to prevent the units from impeding free movement around the restroom. Allied sells several models that can help you comply with this requirement, including the SLIMdri.
  • Ensuring full compliance with ADA restroom regulations involves more information than we can cover in a single post. For all the details, contact your attorney or an ADA compliance specialist in your area.

Besides ADA hand dryer units, we also sell liners, liner dispensers, and baby changing stations for all types of commercial settings.
